This first major climbing expedition to the Himalaya, 1892, was the prototype for most subsequent major expeditions. In addition to exploring the Hispar, Biafo and Baltoro areas, a first ascent of Pioneer Peak (22,600') was made, the highest point climbed at the time. A classic of Himalayan literature. This is the single volume narrative without the separately issued volume of scientific reports. From the collection of American mountaineer Richard Irvin with his signature.
